Described upon release as being “the best PC hockey game released yet” (CGW, Jan 1996) NHL 96 debuted EA’s Virtual Stadium, with a 3D feel even without a 3D accelerator card. (Unlike the SNES version which retained the sprite-based gameplay of the previous games.) This demo version allows you to experience a taste of what the full game offers (sans music) by playing a short game between the Detroit Red Wings and the New Jersey Devils. (Make sure to change at least one player to “Human” when the demo starts up.) While not necessarily as tightly controlled as the earlier sprite-based NHL games, the transition to 3D was generally a favorable one, and allowed for more fluid animations and more realistic gameplay. (NOTE: This game may run too slowly in your browser, you may need to download it and run it locally to get full speed!)
